Andrew Karode is a Senior Technical Analyst at the RAND Corporation, specializing in modeling and simulation and data analysis. Some of the models he has worked on include: a simulation of Anti-Access Area Denial (A2/AD) attacks against airbases, an agent-based rational choice stakeholders model used for political predictions in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, and the Eurozone, a simulation of the defense of a carrier strike group against incoming missile attacks, and an agent-based simulation of sensor data collection at key points of a map with thousands of scripted and random agents. He also has been a key team member of RAND's Combat Operations in Denied Environments (CODE) set of projects, exploring the ability of the US to generate combat power in the face of A2/AD attacks, work for which he was awarded a RAND Silver Medal Award in 2014.
